A WWII flying-ace gun-toting monkey. An alternative history steampunk story, set in a speculative future Paris. A well-written cyberpunk noir action adventure. Ninjas.If that isn't enough for you, what MORE do you want?!via Painting The Monkey on the author's blogSeriously. This book is fantastic fun and lacks for nothing in the writing department. There are two quite original premises.... which I won't mention here, because it would spoil the fun. Discovering the central ideas early on in the book was possibly my favourite part of the experience. You know. That and THE MONKEY. Everyone loves The Monkey. Go buy the book and love The Monkey too.
